The Bed of Procrustes: Philosophical and Practical Aphorisms was the sixteenth book of 2016, which I enjoyed.

The Bed of Procrustes strongest point is that it explains the limits of human knowledge, how we effectively default to the “What you see is all there is” method of analysis, and that we try and fit life’s tensions into “crisp commoditized ideas.” Among the challenge to traditional thought which I enjoy in books like these, this book brings to light the “what are we trying to solve” with any technology use or procurement.  Both I find lacking in the expectations made by my organization.

The Bed of Procrustes is a thought challenging read and recommended as such.  If you’re interested in enjoying it interested in enjoying it you can find it here.
